A young married couple (Tatum Channing, Rachel McAdams) experiences tragedy when a car accident gives the wife Paige a brain trauma, causing her to forget the last five years of her life. Her estranged parents reenter her life, and she starts wondering why she turned her back on them five years before. Meanwhile, husband Leo has the task of trying to get her to fall in love with him all over again. Call it 50 First Dates without the laughs.

ClearPlay In Action!

The Vow was rated PG–13 for “an accident scene, sexual content, partial nudity and some language.” ClearPlayed, the rather bloodless accident scene appears to be fully intact. Approximately 25 instances of language are cut, as are some discussions of sex. A few scenes dealing with the couple’s intimacy have been trimmed, including a midnight swim in underwear and scene involving flatulence

Any promises that I’ll love The Vow?…

I’m a sap. Pure and simple. I cry at everything. That said, I fully expected to hate The Vow, imagining it would pander to the lowest levels of sentimentality. To my surprise, the movie is relatively restrained, with some nice moments and mostly believable acting. While The Vow doesn’t hit any emotional homeruns, it squeezes in enough “singles” to make in an okay romance.
